Sensors, Vol. 19, Pages 918: Graphene Decorated with Iron Oxide Nanoparticles for Highly Sensitive Interaction with Volatile Organic Compounds
ze Jens Eriksson Gases, such as nitrogen dioxide, formaldehyde and benzene, are toxic even at very low concentrations. However, so far there are no low-cost sensors available with sufficiently low detection limits and desired response times, which are able to detect them in the ranges relevant for air quality control. In this work, we address both, detection of small gas amounts and fast response times, using epitaxially grown graphene decorated with iron oxide nanoparticles. This hybrid surface is used as a sensing layer to detect formaldehyde and benzene at concentrations of relevance (low parts per billion). The p...

Spindle cell liposarcoma with a TRIO-TERT fusion transcript
AbstractConventional well-differentiated, dedifferentiated, and myxoid liposarcomas have long been known to harbor numerous typical genetic alterations that allow for diagnosis of these tumors. These includeMDM2 andCDK4 amplification in well-differentiated and dedifferentiated liposarcomas as well as FUS-DDIT3 rearrangements in myxoid liposarcoma. More recently, in-frameTRIO-TERT fusion genes have been described in a subset of non-translocation-related sarcomas including myxofibrosarcoma, dedifferentiated liposarcoma, undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcoma, and leiomyosarcoma.

Comparative Analysis of Secretome of Human Umbilical Cord- and Bone Marrow-Derived Multipotent Mesenchymal Stromal Cells
Production of cytokines and growth factors by cultured human umbilical cord tissue- and bone marrow-derived multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells was measured by multiplex analysis. In most cases, the concentrations of bioactive factors in the culture medium conditioned by umbilical cord-derived cells was ten- to hundred-times higher than in the medium conditioned by bone marrow-derived cells. These results suggest that both multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells from the umbilical cord and cell-free products can have more pronounced therapeutic effect in comparison with mesenchymal stromal cells obtained from “adult” sources.
